Ok guys, I was wondering if I could get a little advice.
My boyfriend has an absolutely lovely Labrador, the cutest thing ever. Trouble is, he knows it. He knows he can get away with absolutely anything because he's hilariously cheeky about it.
Example- He's told to go to bed. He'll lay half out of it, then slowly marine crawl his way out, even keeping just the tippy toes of his back paws in the bed and look at us as if to say "I'm still in bed :D"
We try telling him off and being disciplined, but I don't know. I think he's also far to emotionally attached - he will follow my boyfriend EVERYWHERE. If he goes for a bath, he'll wait outside the door, if he's doing chores he'll always be under his feet and adorable as he may be it's driving the poor guy mad having him under his feet all the time. We can't leave him alone either; we've responded too much to him barking in the past simply because we have to, if the neighbors hear it too much we'll lose him. It gets nightmarish though, we can't even have sex without him interrupting by howling away. Were stuck in a rut because we can't even leave him alone, he'd just bark until we get fucked for it.
I'm really not sure how to get him out of these habits, so I could use some advice ^^
a pet of good taste.

when i was younger we raised a pair of cairn terriers. sweetest, most loveable little furrballs the world did ever see. and they -loved- cheese. didnt matter what kind, if it was cheese they went ape shit over it. even to the point of stealing slices of american cheese off the serving plate when we cooked outside.
they also seemed to love my mothers spagehtti sauce. she would make huge batches of it at a time, then freeze most of it. sometimes it got freezer burnt, then the puppies got it. they loved the stuff. they eventually learned to associate the smell of it cooking with "we're gett'n scetti!" and would line up at the patio door, watching her cook.
so what unusual treats do your pets like?

>Formally known as a ventriculocordectomy, devocalizing animals involves surgically altering the pets so that they can no longer make loud noises by removing some or most of the animal’s vocal chords through either the mouth or larynx.
>CBS News learned that, after the surgery is completed, most pets are left making either low and harsh-sounding or high-pitched and raspy squealing sounds.
>Dog owner Sue Perry was adamantly against the practice, an opinion she voiced while talking with CBS News. Her adopted dog Porter had been devocalized, which reportedly left the animal with a raspy bark.
>“He really has trouble breathing even on a very short walk, and he coughs,” Perry was quoted as saying. “Before I really knew anything about this, they thought he had kennel cough. He gags so I have to monitor him closely when he is eating his food, and I have to water it down.”
Wow, sounds like a great idea! How many of you are now planning to permanently shut your annoying dog up?

Hey /an/. Sometime just happened and I have no one to talk with about it so just bear with me.
So there is this cat that usually hangs around where I live. I have no idea whether it is wild or owns someone, but it isn't afraid of letting me touch him. So naturally I started feeding him and just stroking him whenever I meet him. He even found a partner recently which is a smaller black cat, which I would assume is wild since it wouldn't let me near her.
A few hours ago, on my way back to my dorm. I found him dead in the middle of the street with a tire mark over him, and his guts spread all over the place. The black cat I mentioned earlier was there and she wouldn't leave his side, till someone finally decided to remove the body. I asked my neighbors but know one saw it happen, so we still don't know who did it.
So yeah that's all. I feel really depressed right now and I don't even know if I should be. I wasn't even that close to him, but seeing someone wrap his body up with newspaper and putting him in a plastic bag, while his partner watches really made me feel like shit. Anyways, thanks for listening.
